Immigration Reform - President Obama plans to lay out his administration's own proposals for immigration reform that are supposedly more liberal than a separate bipartisan effort in the Senate, according to the Washington Post. The proposal could include a quicker path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Immigration is a huge issue across the country. How would reform impact California and its citizens?
Hispanic Chamber of Commerce - President Barack Obama's announcement of immigration reform early in his second term is a testament to the importance America's growing Hispanic population played in his reelection. Hispanics are not only a growing political power but they're set to become the largest ethnic group in California by the end of the year. Plus, Latin and Hispanic immigrants play a crucial role in California's economy and business community. Joining us to discuss how proposed immigration reform by President Obama and the US senate could affect the Hispanic business community is the CEO of the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Veronica Delgado, and the Chairman of the California Chamber of Commerce, Ernie Gutierrez.
Light Opera Theatre's "Into the Woods" - Light Opera Theatre of Sacramento was founded in 1982 by Mike and Debbie Baad with an intent to bring the works of Gilbert and Sullivan to the Sacramento area. More than 30 years later, their children and son-in-law have taken the reigns of the company. Katie and Philip Daley and Chris Baad have strived to remain true to the company's mission while bringing in fresh talent, expanding the company's repertoire and increasing the accessibility of a fairly niche genre. Their production of INTO THE WOODS (the first non Gilbert & Sullivan show they've produced in 20 years) open February 1st at the 24th St. theatre in Sacramento.
